Blessed with premium renewable energy resources, and vast open land areas, Australia is undergoing one of the world’s fastest energy transitions.
With offices in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney, Amp Australia has operations in South Australia and New South Wales with a 2GW portfolio of utility scale solar, energy storage, green hydrogen and ammonia projects. Amp’s landmark development, the Renewable Energy Hub of South Australia (REHSA), will combine solar, energy storage, and ammonia production as part of South Australia’s ambitious goal of being a nation leading exporter with 500% of local demand by 2050.
Built or Under Contract
Australia has quickly become a leader in solar deployments, boasting the world’s highest solar production per capita. Amp has three utility scale solar development assets in South Australia totaling 1.36GW of generation, and two operating assets in New South Wales of 160MW.
Energy storage is the key to unlocking 24/7 renewables. Our hybridized battery assets deliver clean and reliable electricity, exactly when it’s needed. We believe battery storage is no longer an option, but a necessity, especially in markets with such high price volatility.
Green Hydrogen & Ammonia
Green hydrogen production uses renewable energy to separate water into hydrogen and oxygen gas using a process of Electrolysis to produce hydrogen or processed ammonia which would ultimately lead to industry decarbonization. Our Renewable Energy Hub in South Australia will incorporate green hydrogen and ammonia production as part of the state’s long-term goal of becoming a net exporter of clean energy.
Amp’s Asset Hybridised portfolio approach allows us to capture intraday spreads (dispatch into high price periods) through time of day arbitrage in jurisdictions like South Australia, by reducing asset level and portfolio risk. Capitalising on lower capture prices to charge a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS), is core to Amp’s hybridised solar and storage assets strategy.
Amp Australia will expand the portfolio with wind generation and hydrogen with the asset hybridisation strategy.
